~Junk Goods on a Tuesday!~

Tuesday has came and went, had to make a quick stop by the booth to do a once over after work.... I should know better, I always come out with an arm load of purchases!!! NEVER LOOK, thats the rule I tell myself...I didn't listen...Well this was the first find, Old Crusty Rusty metal cage, it is old and I love it!! I did get really excited on my way home today, I did a drive by of a dumpster...there lay an old Hoosier top, but it was a mess it had laid there on its belly, gosh knows how long and was rotten all the way through!! I couldn't believe it, well I had to have somthing from it besides a big bug bite I got from the grass... so I ripped those metal shelves right out, they are right in the pic below. I had to have proof it was there!! Besides they were rusty and chippy white, had to get those! I figure I can repurpose them for something, any ideas!!
Junk Stlye... Great book, it was waiting in the mailbox, I love finding these suckers for the booth, great seller!!
Junk treats today!! Old Heavy drawer w/ metal pull $4. Old chippy white door knobs $10, chippy architectural pieces $8 for the lot, Crusty Rusty Tuesday finds!!

This was a Thrift store goodie I grabbed on the way home. Old tarnished Brass The Lords Prayer wall hanging, LOVE... $.80 cents!!

Old NC Seal stamper, the stamp still inside. Old Rusty Junk Jewel Washers, FREE...

I ran across these old Vintage Coins $12, Olds Keys $4 and Sparkley jeweled buttons, $1... at the Market today too, they will come in handy in the Junk Jewel dept!

Could not pass these old Dominos by...Not sure what I like the most the Dominos or the cute Crusty red box??

I hope you all are having a great week and finding alot of good junk!! I can't wait to see what all you got, I will be by to check ya out ! Now ... I need more energy after the day job to get some of the junk in the garage worked up and to the Poet!! It all does look super cute in the garage but it doesn't sell very well out there unless I open up a Junk Inn right there in the garage (the neighbors would just die!). My husband still thinks that not being in the city limits means I can open up shop, I keep telling him the two key things that make that a NO is the sign that says Restricted lots For Sale when you turn into the (keyword here) Neighborhood, if I could I would and it would be great!! I bet every junker girl has had that thought more than once roll around upstairs, to open up shop right out of her garage!! Blessings , Janna

BTW, I am now a follower...why did it take me so long?! I've looked at your blog MANY times - it's just great. I love all the great stuff you find! It is obvious you're having fun! Wouldn't it be great if all we junkers could meet someday? We'd have a ball!

I love the dominoes and the box they came in. Fun find! Also like the Lord's prayer brass and the green glass bottle in the background of your group shot. I'm still thinking about that cherub planter you found on the curb :)

Great Tuesday finds! I love the door handle! I have my eye on a couple too.

donna baker said...

Janna, you crack me up. I can almost hear your breathless voice describing your junque. Don't do anything with the coins till you check them out. Old coins can be worth a small fortune.

Some of those things look awfully familiar....hum...........

I used to visit a gal who did sales only 4 times a year and they had a little bit of land and had a shop built on their property.

Come by for my give-a-way this week by 10 pm Fri.
and then check out our newest addition.

Maya said...

I have one of those old seal stampers..., and it's so heavy that I use it as a door stopper!

"Never Look"...Hee-hee, that's a good one! If you ever get it to work, please tell the rest of us. But ohhh that old rusty crusty cage...what a treasure!!!

time-worn interiors said...

What great finds! I think having a shop in your garage is a great idea! No overhead! Open once a month! Who knows I might even come and check it out! I love all the black and white signs!
